This year marks the beginning of the new UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030), which follows on footsteps and efforts of the UN Decade on Biodiversity (2011-2020). Having just begun the year, everyone is of course very excited about this theme and the prospects of contributing to the restoration of our ecosystems. Easier said than done.
At REVOLVE, we are delving into finding out what ecosystems actually are, how they are defined and organized. We found that they are incredibly diverse, highly complex, and that the UN classifies them in 8 types including:
- Grasslands, Shrublands and Savannahs
- Oceans and coasts
- Urban areas
